wiki.laptop.org needs a better search engine

The search engine used by wiki.laptop.org is seriously deficient.
There has been a long standing discussion of using a different search engine, or including a google search box on the sidebar. The last I heard, the plan is to swap search engines. And that someone was working on it.
Burned yet again, I went looking for a ticket to check on status. And didn't find a ticket. Now there is one.
I've intentionally tagged this as defect, rather than enhancement. And as priority high. The main people using the current search mechanism are visitors. Wiki "developers" cease to eat our own dog food here, and make other search arrangements. The very first time I visited the wiki, I noticed the search engine, um, was poor. This is what we are continuing to give our visitors. The people whom we hope will stay and help out.
